Gaming & Streaming Build For $1000 – Intel and RTX Inside

New Intel 6 core i5 10400, 16gb of G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16 GB memory and RTX 2060 will make this rig able to play and stream games in 1440p/4K. If you need few more FPS, we suggest you to buy RTX 2060 Super which has slightly better gaming performance.

With the motherboard which we have chosen for this rig, ASRock B460M Pro4 in mATX format, in combination with Cooler Master MasterBox Q300L and G.Skill RGB memory, this rig will be as nice as fast in games.

Samsung 970 Evo is best NVMe SSD today with great writing and reading speeds, and with it’s 500GB capacity, you will be able to store all of your games. If that won’t be enough for you, we added Seagate 2TB hard drive.

EVGA 500W power supply with gold efficiency certificate is here to give some good power and make room for future upgrades.
